POMONA (CBSLA.com) — Fliers with a composite drawing of a man believed to be involved in the Dec. 26 killings of a La Verne couple in their home will be distributed Friday.

Shirley Isom, 74, and Armie “Troy” Isom, 89, were found dead by a groundskeeper at their sprawling property in the 300 block of Roughrider Road about 1:25 p.m. Dec. 26. The isolated multimillion-dollar home abuts open land.

The woman died of blunt force injuries, and her husband was apparently beaten and stabbed.

Investigators developed a composite drawing of a man seen walking in the area about the time the crime was discovered, and they released it to the public on Jan. 7. The man, described as white or Hispanic and in his early 30s, was wearing a dark hooded jacket and wearing a large backpack.

On Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., authorities will hand out fliers to motorists along the 3100 block of North Garey Avenue, which is about a mile south of the crime scene. They will also hand out fliers to passengers of the San Bernardino Metrolink line, which is in the same general area.

The motive of the murders is unknown, detectives said. A red Lexus was towed from the property.

Anyone with more information about the homicides was urged to call detectives at (323) 890-5500, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
